    10 Best drivers BMW.....EVER! Well.....not exactly.

    So...I finally found it. It was a ranking put out by Bimmer Magazine, Issue #90, May 2010

    Ear marking it here....so I don't lose it again. I may have to order a back issue for $10.00...just to have.

    DISCLAIMER: This list is for Best Buys late models (not all time 10 greatest)...and I'm sure E30 M3, and Z4M would have made the list had this been a true "Best Drivers" list.

    Fell free to discuss what you think the number one drivers car is, of all time. Lets put a stipulation on it, that it will be a street driven machine, made by BMW.

    From May 2010 issue:

    1. E46 330i/Ci (2003-2006)
    2. E46 M3 (2001-2006)
    3. E39 M5 (2000-2003)
    4. E60 M5 (2006-present)
    5. E63/E64 M6 (2007-present)
    6. E38 750iL Sport (2001)
    7. E38 740i Sport (1999-2001)
    8. E31 850i/Ci six-speed (1991-1993) and 850CSi (1994-1995)
    9. Z8 (2000-2003)
    10. X5 4.6is (2002-2003)/4.8is (2004-2006)



    Had to add 3 of my favorite video's as well. They are other place on the site....but damn...that video with Hitler had me in stitches.

    E52 (non-Alpina) should be much higher on that list

    Wow never seen the Hitler video before that's great.

    I do agree with the list especially for modern bmws but i do also thinj the X5is should probably be higher than the 8ers.

    That list obviously has some issues.
    There is no way on this green (and blue) earth that the M3 scores lower than a 330i. No. Way.

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    Two E38's on the list lol.

    And the E31 is definitely an old car. Not new by any means..

    The Z3m coupe/roadster and Z4M should also be on that list..

    Certainly the list of M's are in the correct order IMO. I think they got #1 right.

    I didn't see a link to read the article but I could see the 330 beating the M3 if it included overall buyer satisfaction.
    I think a lot of M3's were sold to people who really didn't know what they were getting into, just that they were buying "the best" 3 series and probably knocked the M for its harsh ride.
